Everybody is doing it. I've been saying I was going to do it for a while. But now I really am. I was reading Sapphire's page last night, and going over to MamaLaw, it's all over the place how everyone is trying to be better. Plus, I think hubby is planning a little getaway for us, and I can't have my muffin top hanging out all over the beach, and I am not buying a new bathing suit, when I haven't worn the one I bought 2 years ago.
I've been thinking that walking around campus would help drop some weight, however that takes time (and a lot more walking than I actually do), plus I keep forgetting my pedometer. This Friday I'll start a once a week kick boxing class to supplement the walking. I'll be packing my lunch and not stopping at the wonderful dinner I love so much, because even though they have salads, the portions are out of control and I cannot stand to waste food. Drinking more water will also be on the list. It's actually something I should be doing anyways, but don't.
Last night I got off my perch on the couch and did a few crunches. I could feel the tightening immediately. That was all I did, but it was something. I'll get down and do a few more today, before the kids get back. I have decided that there are things I can do that will make it fun and still be healthy and get the kids in on it too. Like jogging while my daughter rides her bike to her friends house (a mile away), we both get a workout, but more than that we get to spend some one on one time. It's a win win. Plus I'll be around for a long time, because my heart will be so strong, and my blood pressure is good.
I've got three lovely girls, and I want to be around for the long haul. So I'm dropping the pounds and really picking up a healthy lifestyle. I hope you'll join us.
